Re: “New teachers face a hostile environment

I think you need to read it again. A close reading. The article didn't say that college kids are going into teaching because of tenure and unions. It DID say that union busting and lack of tenure (which is only the right to due process) are some of the factors causing dissatisfaction for teachers. Teaching is an art, not only teaching the content ateas but being able to do so to 30 or more kids who learn differently than each other, dealing with the physical, developmental and emotional state of each child, as well as the lack of respect and constantly having to do more with less. The problem is even greater than the article describes. 50% of new teachers quit after their first year because they can't do a superhuman job the reformers want. It's not a career for the faint hearted. We do much more than just spout information. Spend an entire day with a teacher and see how hard they work.
